    Help Needed _ Can't play video in Safari
    I'm trying to open a video on the New York Times site. The box opens but no video. I've downloaded Realplayer, Flip for Mac, etc. Honestly, I'm very confused about the various formats, etc.

    I have an IMAC with Leopard.

    BTW, The last error message I got was something about a Realplayer file not existing...

    Thanks.

    I am on New York Times page playing a video here in Leopard 10.5.1. Can you give a direct URL to the exact video that will not play?

    What video on New York Times site are you having issues playing? Is it all videos on NYT or just some? The ones that played for me were using Flash.

    Can you try to open this file? Do I have to tell you exactly where it is located?

    That one is using Real Player and does the same thing here on every browser I tried including 2 versions of Firefox, Opera, Camino and Safari. Sending it to my PC and will try it there. Real player can not find the file.

    Tried that URL on even my almost new AMD 64 Laptop with Full SP2 XP and latest updates and latest Real Player. It's the New York Times end. The file is not there. I used IE7 even. It's the same as on the Mac.
